Obedience Through Christ (adaptation from original written in 1987)

Oh Lord, obedience is all you ask.
Submit ourselves as living sacrifice;
Then we would be as lambs to do your tasks.
Shed Your Glory forth to shine Your Light.
How does Your powerful Light reflect through us?
We do Thy will; we do Thy way, Thy truth.
We daily die, by faith to in You trust.
Our flesh is crucified, ego refused.
We look the fool compared with the elites.
We uphold truth in hope on journey's way.
Destroy our pride; appear as in retreat.
But then He comes, in triumph. Hell's power's stayed.
How is this Light revealed? Reproach was made.
Through Christ, the resurrection we are saved.
